No! I can't- You don't- I won't... Finding Faith has ended, and it feels like i've just shut the most amazingly interesting book in my life, having read the last page. It comes with a relief, that, yes, I completed the story, and with it, there comes a huge, void-like strangeness, that I won't ever get to wait for updates, for the shiny, golden, most beautiful and my favourite banner of this story. I have tears in my eyes, even though, after such a long time, it was such a sweet, happy chapter. But, it was also the last. *cue gut-wrenching feelings and more tears*
Finding Faith has been a part of my life now, from the minute I started reading it, attracted by the lovely, praise-worthy banner, till now, when i'm reviewing the last chapter, and it seems that 6000 characters just won't be enough to express everything I feel. I had the honour of being the 100th reviewer for this story, and silly as it may seem, I was as proud that moment, as I was when I was chosen a Prefect at school, or received a Scholarship.
Ok, back to this chapter : I simply loved, adored, adulated, etc. the beginning... I love it how James and Faith's relationship has grown. I can certainly draw a contrast between how she was before and how she is now, the changes are so drastic, but ,man, you, having written this story, make it all seem so easy to write about. I'm absolutely sure it wasn't, but... I guess you're one of those people whom I will call my idol. Faith has gone through so much, and I'm so, so glad to see she's happy at last. I always knew she would research Lukemia one day, I know she would do it for her sister, but the bit in the end? That was totally unexpected, but adorable all the same. For some reason talking about Grace really does bring tears to my eyes. Faith has gone on a long time without any faith, but God gave her the best co-incidence. Just goes on to show that He never loses faith in us. Gah! Grace you're so adorable.
James. :) I was saving this up... Whoop-di-do, my boy, you got Faith! I jump with joy for you. She's your girlfriend, you're snogging on a regular basis, you're being sickeningly adorable, you're teasing and light-bantering with her, you're going to marry her, then shag like rabbit, then have tons of children and grandchildren... And just. Wow. I'm so happy for you. You deserve every bit of happiness you're getting, and you and Faith deserve each other. Though I can't help but agree when you say she's got Multiple Personality Disorder. I'm still not very clear what to call her; i'll stick with Faith though, it's by far my favourite.
Now, before my nonsense turns you mad, these last words : Best of luck, Faith and James. May you get all the happiness in the world, and always, forever be together.
Author's Response: Believe me, I understand what you're saying. Every time I look at the story and see the word "complete" I feel so incredibly sad for a moment. This story was my baby. I put so much of myself into it and it was the first story I'd ever finished. But at the same time I am so proud of myself and I'm eager to move on to new projects.
I loved being able to finally - FINALLY - write Faith and James in a relationship where they are both secure, comfortable, and happy with how things are. Like seriously, they deserves after everything I put them through.
I'm glad you liked Grace. I had that idea a long long long time ago and I almost wondered if it be like... I don't know, too much or something. But the girl was so adorable, I couldn't cut her out. I just have to hope people like her.
James is amazing. Enough said.
Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you for being such a wonderful, amazing, and down right spectacular reader and reviewer. You have no idea how truly happy your reviews make me. You are fabulous, my dear.
